Dr. Francine Oputa

Interim-Program Coordinator


TJ Taylor

Student Coordinator

B.A. Africana Studies and Dramatic Theater Arts (In Progress)


What are your responsibilities?: My responsibilities are to assist and create programs that will uplift the African-American community on campus. 


What are your interests/hobbies?: I enjoy learning history, writing poetry, producing songs, audio engineering, acting, and photography.


Why do you do this work?: I seek to help as many people I can while at Fresno State. I do this work because I have to do my part in this lifetime to promote a better world for the next generation. I want to speak for the socially invisible and politically voiceless. I aspire to challenge mass consciousness on race relations and spark the imagination of this corporation disguised as a nation.
